Chase County herd proves that bison still rule the range

I used to live off of Cowface Road in the vicinity of Hickory Creek State Park, Beaver Lake, NW Arkansas. There, I had to wake up a home builder years ago. He owned about a hundred head of buffalo in pastures adjacent to his house. I was driving home around 0230, when I came upon 2 bison bulls in the middle of the road. Someone left the gate open. I tried to urge one of them to move by slowly moving my F 150 forward. Hah! Charged me immediately. Literallyas large or larger than my pickup truck were each, and Cowface was a main route for young people getting loaded to get to and from the lake at high rates of speed and a 9 per cent grade. The owner was angry that I awoke him, until I told him why. Beautiful and majestic, but wild none the less...comparable to the animals that hunt them.

US investigates whether diplomat attacks were planned

why are the Marines on station at these facilities able to fire upon anyone trying to scale a wall, blow it up, or shoot at its inhabitants? They have to get special permission...hell, it is sovereign soil. Shoot back! I still think these jihaddist nation's security and intelligence peoples are involved. Pull all of their foreign aid, and shut the embassies down. I don't believe in using diplomacy with people too stupid or ignorant to understand it, or too weak to implement it.

Obama condemns attack that killed envoy, 3 others

The role of education in the middle east seems paramount here...sheria law, jihaddist citizens, middle eastern national governments turning a blind eye toward any hostilities expressed by their extremist citizens, including murder. Where do they attend school? In a mosque? No secondary school including even a general psychology course, or sociology course...just nations raising, not Muslems, but a good percentage of islamists. I wonder if the pseudonym for the movie maker should have been imbecile. Then again, I am reasonably angry to see billions of tax dollars going to a myriad of nations every single year, while we can not provide free health care to poor people. The imbalances go on and on into perpetuity.
